We went to the Gala to see Cara Dillon. The view from the circle was great. The auditorium isn’t huge and the acoustics were spot on. There is a multi storey car park under the venue with plenty of bars in the immediate vicinity.

As far as I can see, there is nothing on at the theatre, at the moment. There may be something on at their cinema but the listings aren't up yet. Best advice is to keep checking on their website, for up to date events.
